My baby is three and a half months now. Since he completed three months, he is more on formula milk than breastfeeding due to supply issues. He poops every alternate day. I am concerned as his poop color is dark green and at the end of the process a slight yellow poop comes. I have learned that babies on formula milk poop green but it is dark green. That is the reason I am concerned. Please suggest. Also, I would like to add that the consistency is normal, not too hard or too watery.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
The color of the poop does not matter much unless it is dark black, which is a possible sign of occult blood. Usually poops in babies on formula feed is dark green. A breastfed baby will have golden yellow poop. So, do not be worried at all.
I also suggest you take some medicines to increase your milk supply as every mother gets milk at least until the baby is six months old. You can try supplements like Lactare or Lactonic granules in milk. If this does not work, I suggest trying Domstal (Domperidone) tablet and it will surely increase milk supply.
I hope you use a breast pump too at home. The more you pump and stimulate your breast, the more milk you will get.
Hope this answers your queries.
